According to Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Jadon Sancho’s career at Manchester United is “90% over”, with the club “open to any opportunity” in January.
The Englishman remains banned owing to his refusal to offer an apology to United boss Erik ten Hag after their fallout over his social media post.
It has been widely reported that he is likely to leave Old Trafford in January, though a loan move has been touted as being the more likely route to an exit.
“I think they [United] know at the moment that it’s not going to be a permanent transfer, that could be a loan deal with a buy option included,” Romano said on his Daily Briefing podcast.
“So, I think in January that they will be open to any opportunity of course. Of course, they would prefer a permanent transfer, that would be perfect to have their money back after what they spent on Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
“But, at the moment, they know in January to find a top class club in Europe prepared to pay, and this is my opinion and not the official price, somewhere between £50m-£55m is not going to be easy. So we will have to see what happens there.
“At the moment, the people from Manchester United is very clear. It looks like it’s 90% over between Jadon Sancho and Man United.
“We keep a 10% because we know that anything can happen in football, but as of today, it reminds us of the situation with Cristiano Ronaldo one year ago. The feeling is that Jadon has to find a new club in . January transfer window.”
Meanwhile, Premier League side West Ham United are said to be reportedly ‘interested’ in his signature.
